The old vine cuvée from the estate is the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Chante Le Merle and it’s always a rough blend of 85% Grenache, 10% Mourvèdre and 5% Syrah that’s fermented with 100% whole clusters and aged mostly in foudre and old barrels. This classic Châteauneuf du Pape is bursting at the seams with notions of blackberries, peppery herbs, scorched earth, and licorice. With full-bodied richness, terrific depth of fruit and extract, fine tannin and first-rate purity, it’s going to benefit from short-term cellaring and cruise for 10-15 years.
